My little pumpkin is trying so hard to crawl. She is pushing up on her hands and trying so hard to push off with those feet. But, she can't get anywhere yet. She's still stuck in the same place I put her down.

Her mama is stuck too.

On one hand, I am overjoyed that she is growing and developing. She is healthy and happy. 

But on the other hand, I feel like my little baby is slipping away before my very eyes. I'm not ready for this stage with her to end, but I'm looking forward to the next stage too. With more poignancy than I have ever felt before, I know that I will never get this moment back.

I know what I should do. I should savor each moment. Live in each moment. And not dwell on yesterday or tomorrow. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.

Knowing what I should do and actually doing it are two different things sometimes. 

But, I don't want to miss this moment because I am so worried about the next. So, I'll keep trying. And, in the meantime, thank goodness for cameras, and blogs, and family with whom you can reminisce (even if your musings are only about two days ago).

Thanks, Graham, for capturing this amazing moment.
